2032 HIGH PERFORMANCE SYSTEM STRATEGY July 2020


The 2032 High Performance System Strategy builds on our successful sporting past to redefine the future. New Zealand’s sporting heritage is proud, and our system has delivered world class results in recent years. But it is stretched and stressed in the face of current demands, let alone emerging trends and the significant impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. With these challenges in mind we need a high performance sports system that is innovative, sustainable, can adapt to change as well as leveraging and enhancing New Zealanders’ unique sense of identity. If we fail to evolve our high performance sport system, we will go backwards in all aspects of high performance sport, as we are overtaken by global and national trends and competing nations. Our ability to inspire the nation and its communities, through more New Zealanders winning on the world stage, will be reduced. This strategy aims to deliver a world leading system that powers New Zealand to sustainable success on the world stage and leverages that success to inspire the nation and its communities, with outcomes that are both aspirational and achievable. It has been developed in consultation with the country’s high performance sport sector, supported by independent experts, to capture what we must strive to achieve between now and 2032 to drive repeatable success by more Kiwis in more sports. High Performance Sport New Zealand will lead the implementation of the strategy’s priorities. At their core is the need to invest in the wellbeing of all people within the system and be smart with our resources. This will deliver excellence within our system and contribute to broader government outcomes by positively impacting the wellbeing of all New Zealanders.
